The aim of 4PAD is to foster interaction between the formal methods
communities and systems researchers working on topics in modern
parallel, distributed, and network-based processing systems (e.g.,
autonomous computing systems, cloud computing systems,
service-oriented systems and parallel computing architectures).

4PAD topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

* Rigorous software engineering approaches and their tool support;
* Model-based approaches, including model-driven development;
* Service- and component-based approaches;
* Semantics, types and logics;
* Formal specification and verification;
* Performance analysis based on formal approaches;
* Formal aspects of programming paradigms and languages;
* Formal approaches to parallel architectures and weak memory models;
* Formal approaches to deployment, run-time analysis,
adaptation/evolution, reconfiguration, and monitoring;
* Case studies developed/analyzed with formal approaches;
* Formal stochastic models and analysis;
* Formal methods for large-scale distributed systems;
* Statistical analysis techniques based on formal approaches.


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on
above and other topics related to Formal Approaches to Parallel and
Distributed Systems. Submitted papers must not have been published or
simultaneously submitted elsewhere until it appears in HPCS
proceedings, in the case of acceptance, or notified otherwise. For
Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not
to exceed 8 double-column IEEE formatted pages per template, and
include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words.
Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer
for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please
specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers
on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to
provide helpful comments.
